About Me

Update October 11 2019: I will be out of town for the next week, so expect some late ratings! I will be back probably on the 21st.

Hi! I am Caitlyn and I am from rural Missouri. Recently, I became obsessed with 'stationery' (I find that word a bit strange), bullet journalling, markers and whatnot. None of my friends share this certain affinity, so I thought I would try out this website!

Personal Life

  • I have two dogs and three cats that I absolutely adore! The cats are black, grey, and a tabby. The dogs are a Border Collie Husky mix and an American Eskimo, Mosey and Colby respectively. Mosey has one brown eye and one blue eye!
  • I am currently in college pursuing an engineering degree. I am enjoying learning new things, but classes can make me pretty busy.
  • [Redacted for now due to a two truths and a lie swap! (:]

What I Love!

  • The color green! Especially lighter greens, lime green is okay but definitely subpar to the lovely, earthy tones the color is capable of!

  • Pens and markers! I love Zebra Mildliners, they are definitely my favorites. I also own a lot of pilot g-2 pens and Crayola Supertips -- can you tell I'm on a budget?? I've heard of Tombow dual-brush pens, Pigma Micron pens, Muji and the like, I just can't buy it all at once. Slow and steady wins the race?

  • If I had to choose an animal, it would probably be the bear. Polar bears, grizzly bears, sun bears, panda bears, black bears, you name it and I love it! While I probably wouldn't like to encounter a bear out in the wild I enjoy what they represent to me. I think I may eventually even get a tattoo of one.

  • My favorite city is Chicago! I have visited twice and each time I was absolutely enamored. The first time was with my family and we mostly went around the museum scene. The Museum of Science and Industry is a must see! There are so many things to see and interact with there, including a gigantic, realistic train set!

Stationery I Love!

  • My favorite color, like I said, is earthy green!
  • I gravitate towards things with prints of leaves. I have five leaf washi tapes!
  • I really enjoy things like plain brown card stock or paint swatches. Just like they say, "keep it simple, stupid". Stationery is, for me, calming - but it loses that effect if complicated.
  • Simple watercolor-like designs and repetitive prints.
  • Have you ever heard the word "bucolic", or "pastoral"? I enjoy that sort of vibe.
  • "Vintage" things also catch my eye often.

PC Specific

  • Architecture cards
  • Pictures of scenery, especially specific to a certain region (e.g. the badlands, mountains, ocean, basically anything you wouldn't find in Missouri)
  • Flora and Fauna, this includes drawings of them
  • While those are my particular interests, I would enjoy most anything!
  • Please no nudity, political stuff, or quotes

Food?

  • When it comes to teas, I am okay with practically anything. I haven't really tried a wide variety of teas and am eager to try more. I lean towards mint- or fruit-flavored, though.
  • I have no food allergies.
  • I don't enjoy especially sugary stuff, like the majority of candy

Specific Wants

I would really like some gift tags to use for washi samples! I am using playing cards right now, while functioning I know it could be a lot prettier (:

I have a very small variety of mint stamps as well.

Also, I didnโ€™t know the word ephemera existed until a month ago, and therefore have NONE! I would love some unique stuff, especially botanic themed

Please avoid sending....

  • Bright colors with insane patterns and glitter and pop-ups and the like. I am open-minded to them, these things just usually aren't pleasing to me so please don't make them the main shebang.
  • Extremely scented things. Light scent is okay.
  • Please no nudity, political stuff, or quotes (:
  • No children's, cartoon, or teacher items. I do not have any use for these things and do not like them.

Comment: I'm sorry, Caitlyn. I feel so bad, but I never got this :( I'll change once received. Thanks
Response: Hi sandie! A few days after receiving your private message about not receiving anything, I got the envelope back to me for unknown reasons. I resent on October 10th, and as ive learned my post office can be pretty slow. Hopefully, you receive your Washi tapes soon and when you do please do not rate me down for lateness! I swear, I did not intend this to happen. If you do not get your tapes before I get home from my trip I will send some more for you!
